I finished playing the demo (a few maps and a battle = demo material apparently), and I've gotta say,
this is FAR from "the best RPG Maker game".
First off, I had no clue what was going on. I only played the first Suikoden, but I didn't really enjoy it.
You might want to give a bit of a recap of what happened in the previous games. The main story
was also boring as all hell, and near the end of it, I just kept pressing 'enter' so I could get to some more gameplay.
(For which there was no more.)
The dialogue itself had numerous grammatical and punctuation errors, which is odd from somebody
who claims to be an expert writer.
The first (and only) battle was somewhat tedious. When I first played it, I didn't know what was going
on since you kept all the Japanese text. (There ARE Vocab and database translations, all you have to do is copy and paste)
I ended up getting a game over. The second time I tried it, I just spammed "Rainstorm" about five-six times, and that did it.
The battlers were hidden behind the battle screen, which isn't exactly good.
The screen tint in a few scenes were also way too dark, and I couldn't see the characters on the map as well.
I have a few nitpicks, too. I could barely see the title screen text behind the main title picture.
And the battle music is way too upbeat and cheerful compared to the scene that came before it.
All in all, I have to say this is not a good game in any way. The story was boring and battling was not very fun.
Now don't let this get you down. Don't start raging over it. Instead, take it in and try to improve the game
with it. Don't get your expectations super high and believe this is (once again) TEH BESTEST RPG MAEKER GAEM EVIR MAED!!1one
'Cause you know what? It's not. It really is not.
I think one of your own screens can summarize what I'm saying.
